In the first 24 hours after posting, Identity column re-seed: when it is necessary? garnered about 700 Visits. Was it real? Was it some form of hacking?

(I'm not complaining; my Answer got a lot of upvotes at the same time.)

  1. It might have been featured on the Hot Network Questions list.
  2. Perhaps someone tweeted it.
  3. Without access to question referrer statistics, it's tough to know for sure where those views came from. Safe to say its not hacking, with all the far higher value targets out there.

    Yeah it hit the HNQ, as did this question at about the same time. It also has 700+ views. – Paul White Nov 28 '18 at 2:59
